  1. November 21, 2002 Troy Tolley, Channel Open Floor [M_Entity] Hello to all of you. We are here. We understand that you are interested in the “energy report,” so we will begin there. As we have covered the next several weeks in our previous reports, we do not have much more to add. We can more appropriately give you any specifics that have come up as a result of the passage of time. The next two weeks appear to be a week of contrasts. This is more elaboration on what we had originally termed “surprising” manifestations. In the next weeks ahead, there appears to be a continued energy focusing on high contrasts between what is assumed or expected versus the manifestations opposed to this. This is merely the manifestations of Martyrdom and Impatience, as we have elaborated on in your past. Anyone who has Impatience and/or Martyrdom can attest to the seemingly consistent stream of experiences that push the Personality in directions unexpected. This will be played out in its highest density of manifestation over the next two weeks, possibly three weeks, as the opportunity to indulge in these Fears is presented/created. As these weeks pass, it will be meaningful to most of you to reread the previous two transcripts with the Energy Reports for more details in how to handle these energy fluctuations. It can be said at this time that each of you will most likely NOT “escape” the energy moving through your plane, as easily as is usually the case. It seems most fragments are resonating with the exponential “agitation” that has begun to unfold. The Energy we speak of would be that of the “collective” energy generated among most human sentience at any given time. In many cases, many of you can evade or avoid these energy shifts and fluctuations as easily as you would rain, but in the weeks ahead, this appears to be more “stormy” than usual and it will at least touch your attention. We simply mean that each of you will most likely find some kind of contrast against your expectations to deal with that are fairly striking compared to your usual surprises, as well as more community and global levels of surprise. For instance, a well-known figure in the acting field has recently come to terms with going “public” about her belief and experiences of “reincarnation” and this will most likely be a focus of media for a while. This may seem to be a plain example, lacking fanfare, but this is what we are trying to convey through the example. The experiences appear to range from high surprise to sheer shock, depending on your personal resonance with the energy at the time. It could then be said that the next 3 weeks or so will have a Key Theme of High Contrast (Surprise), and a Key Resolution through Surrender. By Surrender, we mean to find ways to “enjoy the ride,” to observe with a bit of detachment as a means to find the humor and adventure in your life. Many of the “surprises” will just be humorous, as that is the nature of Humor, to contradict, surprise, and present paradox. A recent example would be in the spectacle made of the fragment known as Michael Jackson. We will now open the floor to questions. [sam_nemo] My reading of the Tao Te Ching and Bhagavad Gita indicates that results are more important than means, but Michael said another time the journey was more important. [M_Entity] And what is your question? [sam_nemo] Which is more important, the ends or means? Am I misreading the texts? [M_Entity] Both are “important,” but each takes on its own importance depending on the context. In most religious texts, the emphasis is on the END RESULT because most religions spring from a need to understand tragedy and pain. In that need to understand, it is easier to satisfy the more passive states of being human, by stating that rewards are at the end, and that as long as you get there, the path did not matter. This is helpful when one is concerned with whether he or she is on the “right path or not.” In our perception, there is only the path of Choice, so there is no “right or wrong,” only Choice. Our emphasis is a bit more on the means to create a path to your liking, because you will get to the “end” no matter what... you may as well enjoy the journey. The “end” never truly comes, anyway. Therefore, in the end, it is the Journey that becomes your “heaven.” If you choose to be an active participant in your life, learning how to choose, and choosing how to learn, then it is the Journey that will be of importance to you. [clairen] At what point in Gandhiji's life did the Transcendental Soul manifest? [M_Entity] A Transcendental Soul is born. It does not manifest in the same way that the Infinite Soul does. This is because the fragment that is “in” the body is already a fragment from the Entity being represented. There will, of course, be a regaining of consciousness, but it will not be as lengthy and troubled as a single fragment's. This is why a Transcendental Soul tends to be so effective and magnetic quite early in the life. While the individual is technically a Transcendental Soul, he still exists with a Personality that will have its challenges based on imprinting or ideals. In his case, he had an emphasis on alleviating the effects of Greed, which would mean he had his own personal fears related to this Chief Feature. His Idealism, at times, would lead him into naivety as he would assume that Sexual exchanges somehow “stole” from the energy of another, or himself. We remind you that while Transcendental Souls have a “higher” perspective of everything, they are immediately as susceptible to the confusions of being human as they are of the wisdom from the Entity. [clairen] Why did he feel so guilty about sex with his wife? [M_Entity] It will help to understand that Sex was the most immediate indulgence available for the Transcendental Soul to use as a tool and example of restraint against Greed. Since this is a common indulgence, it was more symbolic than literal in his experiences. [Mike_Val] Can you tell us about what happens within the first 72 hours of death? [M_Entity] Physically, or metaphysically, Mike? [Mike_Val] Metaphysically, or both if you wish to elaborate. [M_Entity] The first “72 hours” after death become quite meaningless in terms of hours. To the individuals still extant around the fragment who has died, this passage of time is more literal. In other words, what happens in the 72 hours after a fragment's death may not be experienced by the fragment, itself, until much “later.” Time becomes much more malleable and while some fragments will “immediately” seek the comfort and consolation of family and friends, others will “go back” to those hours immediately following death to offer comfort, but only after the fragment itself has reached some understanding of what has occurred. There is no standard. We can say, however, that the GENERAL way of experiencing post-body is through a process very similar to what you experience in terms of waking up physically. Most of you will have your experiences following death to be very similar to your experiences of waking up each day. If you wake up grouchy, you will most likely die “grouchily.” If you wake up “bubbly,” you will most likely die “bubbly.” If you recall your dreams more readily, you will most likely recall your lifetime as readily. If you never remember your dreams, you may find that a series of “dips” back into the lifetime timeline will be a form of review. Regardless of how all of this is experienced, most fragments are immediately interested in emotional rest, healing, and comfort during what you would call the first 72 hours. [essenses] Regarding the prophesies of the indigenous peoples that say as we come to the year 2012, time as we know it will shift. Are you aware of a shift that will occur that will be very different from life as we know it now, and if so what would the change look and feel like? [M_Entity] There will always be shifts and that which is indicated by Mayans, or any other ancient or modern group, are no more or less as meaningful or meaningless as any other shift. Some groups have a calendar to point out the date, and still others are as vague as simply stating that “He will return.” We remind you that your most recent shift in consciousness globally came on September 11, 2001. Previous to this, it was in August of 1987. These shifts in perception of Time or Space or spirit or matter are not rare, though they can be more or less subtle. [essenses] Are we entering a “golden age,” 4th dimension less density? [M_Entity] Probabilities do indicate a strong inclination for world peace and continuing explorations of compassion, if this is what you mean by “less density” and a “golden age.” [essenses] Yes, I guess so as that is what the predictions say. [M_Entity] It is a Mature Soul world, which could be interpreted as “4th dimensional,” if that is your terminology, as it is the 4th soul age. [Leela] Can you please comment on the origins of what is now known as “belly dance”? By origins, I mean both geographically/culturally, and spiritual; I feel that this dance is very powerful and meaningful. What were its original purposes? Is it true that it was partially used for childbirth rituals? [M_Entity] This dance has its origins from more than is considered now, though its more traceable roots can be seen to reach into the history of what is called the Middle East or Orient. We have seen this dance as being prehistory, being a form of varying forms of power during a period on Earth when women ruled. [Leela] Is this dance a form of energy work? [M_Entity] It was used as torture as well as mating, sexual stimulation between same sexes, and birthing. The more mystical meanings began to become associated with this dance many years past its true origins. [Leela] Torture?! [M_Entity] Yes, sexual forms of taunting were used to punish males. The dancing you recognize today could be said to be a refined version of its origins, with a focus on the more spiritual aspects as it relates to images ranging from Skakti to servants of pleasure. It has always been a Moving Centered/Intellectual Part form of dancing, as it is focused entirely on control, balance, isolation, and anticipation. Or an Intellectually Centered/Moving Part form of dancing. Those who of either centering are usually drawn strongly to it. It is less about the history that draws the fragments who practice it, as it is about the resonance within the body and the ensuing resonance with the Energy of the physical plane. For most fragments who begin practice this form of meditation, blockages within the lower chakras and the Higher Moving Center can tend to be “cleared” up, releasing a storehouse of erratic energy at first, then slowly settling into the balance it naturally would have. [oldwarrior] When the God/”god” Yahweh/Jehovah is discussed in the bible does this name refer to a historical, flesh and blood person? A being from another planet or solar system perhaps? [M_Entity] In most cases, this is an individual, yet mostly based on what would today, in your culture, be called an “urban legend.” This is why there are so many conflicting accounts of visual contact with this “individual.” There was a valid individual to which most of the stories referred, and yes, the individual was not of Earth. [oldwarrior] what species does Yahweh represent? [M_Entity] This “god” has been an influence in many times and places and while the stories conveyed are based in the understandings of the time, the species being spoken of are the same in most cases. This would be the species most notably called “big foot,” “Sasquatch,” or “Yeti.” Only in recent history has the chance been taken to be physically seen. Previous to this, most contact was interpreted as light, or glowing. This was due to the ability of that species to generate a telepathic block to visual interpretation of them. This need was seen to be important as the body types of this species tends to contradict the ideas of Humans as to what is civilized. [Mike_Val] An Oxford DNA Scientist has stated that we have originated from seven women in a book called The Seven Daughters of Eve. Can we as a race, be traced to these seven women scientifically through our DNA? [M_Entity] No. We do not see validity to this. Though this could be a distorted interpretation of the fact of your Species being based on a hybrid of 7 different species. [chrisx1] referring to the comment on the last shift in consciousness on Sept. 11, 2001, when is the next shift of significance? [M_Entity] These shifts are never predictable, but they are able to be seen in terms of probabilities. The most significant shift pending in your timeline now appears to be in or near the year 2020. A great deal of meaning is placed in this configuration of numbers, and while there will be shifts before that time, that year appears to be a pivotal year. It appears to be the first year that two major countries will share a leader, or stand as joint leaders. If this does not occur literally, it will be a strong focus in the world as to how this will be implemented when it does become feasible. It is also the first year that the country known as Iraq may first become territory controlled by another country's leader. This is already an agenda of the United States, even if not intentionally. We will conclude now. Good night.
  2. OMW - Feb 5, 2011 - Loving and Being Loved (Four and 1/2 hours of live channeling) (Note: linked to two other transcripts that should be read and/or referred to; plus, I'd recommend reviewing the "Manifesting Essence" workshop transcript, AND reviewing the three articles on "Creating a Conscious Connection to Essence" on TLE in the Advanced Teachings section of the Forums.) [Geraldine] (The one thing the transcripts can't show are the long pauses) [Michael Entity] Hello to everyone. We are here. We can begin with a discussion of the requested topic of Loving and Being Loved. First, we will point out that what we will discuss today, in all of its parts and degrees and rings and facets and levels, that this discussion is focused on UNCONDITIONAL LOVE. Depending on your preference, Unconditional Love does have degrees, or circles, rings, facets, etc. It is not that each of these is greater or better in any evolutionary way, but that these describe the various CONTEXTS within which Love is experienced. For instance, the Nurturing Ring of Love between Mother and Child can be unquestioned, unshakable, and completely free of conditions, but this does not mean the Mother has Comprehensive Love or Agape for her child. Each Ring encompasses the previous Ring, if you will, and therefore Agape (the 7th Ring), for instance, will include Nurturing Love (the 1st Ring), but the emphasis will not necessarily be on the Nurturing. It simply means that Agape can more easily draw upon the Nurturing Ring of Love, but does not mean it will. We realize we are jumping around these Rings of Love, but that is only because we wish to point out the Unconditional element that will be consistent among all the ways we will discuss Love today. We will present the information more orderly from here. We also wished to point out that Love is not necessarily a linear development, despite the Degrees, Facets, Rings, etc. Once you Love, you LOVE. The rest is details. The next thing we would like to point out is that once you Love, you cannot UN-LOVE. If you can "un-love," then you did not Love. No matter how unromantic or disappointing that is to know; if you can unlove someone, you never loved that person, at least not in the terms that we are discussing Love today. Being angry or disappointed or frustrated or separating or upset or grieving are not signs that you have unloved someone. Love INCLUDES those feelings. And that is a profound key to understanding your Love for Self and Other. Love ALLOWS for everything. Hence, its Unconditional State. Loving the Self or Other does not mean bliss, though it can be blissful. It means allowing room for everything that is, was, and will be. Before we go into the dynamics of the Personality and how Loving and Being Loved works within each Lifetime, we will point out the general themes for each Role and how that pursuit of Loving and Being Loved shows up over lifetimes. Every Role has its blind spot to love, and when that blind spot finds light, that Role usually experiences a profound exposure to Love. Before describing these generalities for the Roles, we will say that every fragment, regardless of the Personality, lifetime, circumstances, etc, is ALWAYS LOVED by someone, somewhere, in some way. First, there is the Love from your own Essence that cannot be altered. Its baseline is Love, Unconditional and constant. However, it learns to Love in different ways over lifetimes until all Facets or Degrees, etc., are collected as experiences and developed strongly. But there is no lifetime that is born without at least the Nurturing Love of Essence. However, more than that Loves you. If you are animated, conscious, and living your life, you are Loved. It is one of the primary life forces that allows for Sentience. That being said, the Role does have its own blind spots to Love in terms of receiving it, despite its capacity for giving it to its own Personalities. No amount of rejection or blind spots can deter Love, for the Essence or the Personality, but it can deter the conscious experience of it, and that conscious experience of it is vital for collecting all forms of Love over lifetimes. We will describe those now: For SERVERS, the experience of Loving comes so easily that at some point over the lifetimes there is a period of time where it is blocked as much as possible so that there is a well-rounded experience of Love, and this gives insight into how to work around blockages in others. This period of blockage is cyclical and within each Level of Soul Age, so it is rather common enough that we can describe it as a pattern of significance. Servers, then, more than most Roles, tend to need PROOF OF LOVE in order to bring light to through their blind spot. Keep in mind that we are describing blind spots, and the means through which to bring light to that blind spot, but these conditions for experiencing Love does not equal a distortion of Love or a lack of Love. Love, if you will, does not mind the hoops that each of us requires of it, which we realize is a paradox or irony. In other words, the person who Loves the Server who requires Proof would not be offended by that necessity for Proof, and would allow room for that necessity. Because Servers are often so overlooked or taken for granted, this wish for Proof make go on as a silent longing, and the Server may never give voice to that craving. They may even dissuade it or dismiss the attempts. At first. But they will also know when it is true. When it is Love. And that will not be forgotten. PRIESTS, more than any other Role, tend to require being SURPRISED by Love as a means to bring light to their blind spot. Priests will often note that they are Loved, and even feel that Love, because, like all Roles, there is a default kind of Love that shows up in various ways. The Servers' is Nurturing, while the Priests' is Altruism. That Altruism is a faceless kind of Love, so the blind spot is the focusing of Love on a face, so to speak. There is nothing more profound, in terms of Love, to a Priest than to suddenly realize he or she IS Loved. By someone specific, or for a specific reason, or quality. Priests rather presume they are Loved, in general, but when that is given a face or a form, it sheds light in their blind spot. ARTISANS, more than any other Role, usually need to SEE that they are Loved as a means to bring light to their blind spot. By this we mean that they are often quite affected by displays of Love, showcasing of Love, an aesthetic means of bringing it to their attention. Artisans, despite their capacity to Create, have the most challenging time HAVING, and therefore, when Love is made tangible in some way that is beautiful to them, Love is let in. SAGES, more than any other Role, need you to TELL THEM that they are Loved, in order to bring light to their blind spot. More than any other Role, they need to hear it. You can be the most difficult and challenging person in his or her life, but if you can express a heartfelt, genuine Love into WORDS, the Sage knows that everything will be ok. Though it is important for the words to be genuine, even the most-fleeting of "I Love You's" for a Sage can often make a difference. But the more genuine, the more profound the embedding of that Love. WARRIORS, more than any other Role, tend to require you to WIN THEM OVER to Love as a means to bring light to their blind spot. This is different from "proving" Love, in that it does not require proof as much as it does endurance. Of course, that endurance is often experienced as Loyalty, and Loyalty is Love to the Warrior. KINGS, more than any other Role, tend to require you to LET THEM LOVE YOU FIRST before he or she can let you love him or her. Of course, this does not mean you cannot Love the King, but it does mean that he may not experience it until he has decided he can Love you. "Letting the King Love You First" would simply mean that you go about your business of being yourself, with no airs, no pretense, no agenda, and this gives the King time to Love you. The SCHOLAR, more than any other Role, tends to require you to LOVE THEM ANYWAY, as a means to bring light to their blind spot. Scholars, of all Roles, have the hardest time understanding and experiencing Love, and therefore can be quite obtuse to these matters. Your Love must "make sense" to them before they can experience it, and no matter what you do, say, or are can alter the process of the Scholar needing to find the equation that fits to make that sense. The more data you can provide, the better, which means this Role more than most needs to be pushed into Love, led with a strong hand and heart. We will recap briefly each of the Roles for consistency of correlations so that you can see the pattern: SERVERS - need Proof - defaults to Nurturing Love PRIESTS - need Surprises/Faces - defaults to Altruistic Love Both of these factors of need are extensions of the correlating Chief Negative Features of Self-deprecation and Arrogance, which are about Being Seen Too Closely, and Not Being Seen Close Enough. Self-deprecation is about Not Being Seen Close Enough, or Being Invisible, etc, hence the necessity for Proof that you can see that fragment. Arrogance is about being Seen Too Closely, being Too Vulnerable, but if you can expose yourself, show your face, it can help the Priest to overcome that obstacle. ARTISANS - need to SEE Love - default to Alliance Love SAGES - need to HEAR Love - default to Comprehensive Love The needs here relate to Self-Destruction and Greed, which are about Having Too Much, and Not Having Enough. It could be said, then, that the Artisan needs permission to WANT Love, while the Sage needs permission to NEED Love. Demonstrating Love for the Artisan is acceptable to the Artisan because once it is in creation, and created for him or her, it is often okay then to Want it. Telling the Sage that you Love her, and telling her often, is important to the Sage because it means that it is okay to Need that Love. Artisans can tend to "take" love if it is not offered, creating manipulative strategies to secure it without looking like she wants it, and the Sage can often come off as "needy" and resort to quiet or demonstrative tantrums in her wish for more direct and honest expressions of Love. WARRIORS - need to be Won Over - defaulting to Reciprocal Love KINGS - need you to Let Them Love - defaulting to Agape Love These needs are correlated to MARTYRDOM and IMPATIENCE, which are about Losing Control of Space, and Losing Control of Time. In other words, the Warrior needs shared "territory" to Love, and The King needs shared "time" to Love. SCHOLAR - needs to be Pushed to Love - defaulting to Appreciative Love The Scholar's needs are extensions of Stubbornness, and this means in terms of Love that there is resistance to new input, new data, new meanings, etc. The Scholar, then, needs EXPERIENCE/Experiments to Love. Before we continue, we will now open the floor to questions about what has been shared so far, and invite your validation for what we have shared regarding your Role. We know that each of these descriptions may apply because of imprinting and generalities, but there may be some sense of truth to the insights ******QUESTIONS******* [Geraldine] My validation would include -- as a sage-cast sage, I don't believe all words; I've learned to be wary of liars -- but I would say that "while the Sage needs permission to NEED Love." is a major Bingo even though both of my CFs are arrogance [Maureen] Just a thought - I can see this is spot on - but I can also see the confusion this creates 'loving' across roles [nicholas] I resonate w/ that, too G. I have often felt it was not okay to be/feel NEEDY of love...until recently:-) [Michael Entity] Yes, Maureen, we will get to that in the next part of our discussion and hope to shed light on that process. [jana_kunft] I had a sort of similar question - If I have Impatience as CF, not self destruction ("Artisany" CF), would my blind spot not come more out of that Impatience rather then out of self-destruction (an Artisan CF)? [Michael Entity] Jana, what we have described above are blind spots for the ESSENCE. This means it will be consistent across lifetimes, regardless of the Chief Negative Feature of the Personality during that lifetime. [jana_kunft] Ah I see [Michael Entity] In other words, "you" may fear losing control time (impatience) because of factors specific to experiences in this life, and this will affect your Personality's experiences related to Love, but the blind spot of Essence would affect how your Essence experiences what "you" have gathered as experiences of Love. It is not that the Essence has a Chief Negative Feature, but that the correlating Chief Feature helps describe the inherent blind spot of Essence. Think of the Chief Feature correlation as being the "Achilles' heel" of that Role, whereas the Chief Feature developed by Personality is the same for itself. Also, keep in mind that Personality is incapable of Loving. It is only Essence that can Love. The more present the Essence in the life, the more the Personality experiences Love, but it cannot do so on its own. Therefore, the Chief Negative Feature of the Personality might be said to be an obstacle to the embrace of Essence, and the inherent blind spot for Essence is an obstacle to the embrace of Love. [ClaireC] Your description of the Scholar needing to be pushed describes my experience of "going along" with situations and not knowing if this is true love. [Michael Entity] Claire, this is why we think that EXPERIENCE is the key to the Scholar eventually embracing Love. They must KNOW it is Love before they can embrace it, which means that it must make sense, or at least have meaning. The problem is when the Scholar seeks to plug the experience of Love into equations that have not made room for it. The more experience the Scholar gains, the more she begins to realize what was Love all along. More than most Roles, the Scholar tends to realize "too late" just how much she was/is Loved, but she realizes it, eventually. [ClaireC] Yes, I get it. Thank you. [Michael Entity] Yes, Jana. Another question? [jana_kunft] Would not loving someone for a specific reason or quality (as you have mentioned in connection with Priests), be loving them conditionally? [Michael Entity] Jana, first we need to clarify that some of our wording in the sharing above is in need of correction. For instance, "The King needs time to BE Loved." Not "to love." All of what we shared above is about the reception of Love by a Role. Next, what we have shared so far is a matter of language, so to speak. [jana_kunft] I realise language can be confusing, I meant, I am sometimes not clear about the distinction between, conditional, unconditional, romantic fantasy etc. But I realise this may be a hefty subject to get into and was to a large part also answered elsewhere [Michael Entity] If one were to say "I LOVE YOU" in Cantonese to someone who can only speak and understand Italian, or vice versa, it would not mean that the Cantonese person does not love, and it would not mean that the Italian is rejecting that Love, but to learn how to say it a language that can be heard bridges the gap, or the "blind spot." [jana_kunft] oh i see what you meant by language now [Michael Entity] In fact, it could be said that "blind spot" or "language of love" are interchangeable concepts that can help one to understand what we are sharing here so far. Therefore, the "Language of Love" for the Sage, for instance, is vocal expression. For the Artisan, it could be said to be Presentation. For the King, it is Time; for the Warrior, Space or Territory. For the Scholar, it is Experience; for the Server it is Proof; for the Priest it is Surprise/Faces, standing out. More specific to the Sages, it might be more accurate to say "reassurances." [Geraldine] But, Michael, all of those words words words are coming from other Personalities who cannot love [nicholas] but Geraldine, I think that no matter the words, when essence is manifesting, the love can be felt... [jana_kunft] so what you gave us is like a inter-Role dictionary of Love [Michael Entity] Geraldine, that is where your own Personality's developing capacity for discernment comes in. Regardless of that capacity, your Essence will know when it is Love, even if it is outwardly rejected or downplayed by your Personality. And Nicholas is correct: the experience of Love by Personality is to the extent that Personality has embraced/manifested Essence. Personality can reject and deny Love its entire life, and still have a reservoir of Love waiting for it after the life, which was collected by Essence along the way, with or without the Personality realizing it. Part of the 7th Internal Monad, actually, is the process of integrating all of the Love that was not integrated during the lifetime. Yes, Jana, it could be said to be a reference, at least, for how one Role might Love another Role, if one so chooses to do so. [Tim_W] Experiencing unconditional love through Essence; would that be similar to the compassion one feels when channeling/attempting to channel a higher Entity? [Michael Entity] At least one Circle of Love (level, degree,...) must be sustained during any valid Channeling of a fragment, an Entity or even the manifestation of Essence. For the most part, the default Circle of Love tends to be the foundation for any individual Channeling or Manifesting Essence. [Tim_W] oh ok. I understand. However much I'm manifesting would be the most I'm able to feel. [Michael Entity] For instance, our Artisan Channels tend toward ALLIANCE as their foundation for our working through them. There is often a necessity to create a state of unconditional alliance in place for the students who work with our Artisans. For our Sage channels, the tendency is toward a foundation of COMPREHENSION for our work through them. [Tim_W] oh i (actually) see now. [Tim_W] That's great information! Thank you [Michael Entity] For Sages, a state of Unconditional Truth is necessary to be in place for those students who work with us through them. This means, they have to "be themselves" more than our other channels, and have an outlet for that, and usually generate a profound awareness that no truth is meant to be personal or offensive, but simply a stepping stone toward even greater truths. [Martha] sounds like a certain channel we know [Michael Entity] Yes, that was an easy one to get through Troy. [nicholas] Do these rings of love represent forces or frequencies of love? And, in terms of healing, does each default ring for each essence role tend to be the type of love offered to another for healing? [Michael Entity] We like to see Love as having concentric rings, or spheres within spheres, much like the Planes are arranged, so that each context includes the previous. However, though it may seem to be a progressive description, it is not. It is more a description of INCLUSIONS than steps or levels. Many fragments do tend to move through the Rings in a progression, but that is only in terms of realization, not experience. For instance, you may experience Comprehensive Love but still have to realize the Nurturing Love within that, which leads to a realization of Alliance, which leads to a realization of Reciprocity, and so on. Think of the parent who may love her child Comprehensively, but the child only realizes he is Nurtured Unconditionally. Over time, that child may grow to realize that he is also Loved for exactly who he is and wants to be (comprehension), not just Loved as a way to be kept alive. In terms of Healing, yes. The default capacity for Love tends to be the means by which a fragment will focus that healing. For instance, the Sage tends to share the truth (comprehension) as a means for healing, whereas the Priest might focus on Altruism, which is just another way of saying "empathy." Or "compassion." Of course, no fragment is locked into its Role's default, but if there were no inherent defaults, the stable force of Love would not exist. [Diane] In general, please, what are the inclusions when a new parent has a realization that their parents did actually love them? [Michael Entity] That experience, Diane, is often AGAPE, itself. It is the total loss of conditions on any level, and the complete realization of all of the Circles of Love that encompassed your own development. This does not mean "forgiveness" or that anger and resentment fade instantly, but Agape allows room for those, while still holding the realization of Love. "I can still be angry at you for certain things, but I can also know that you were doing your best to love me." We have already shared a great deal of information about the 7 Circles/Spheres of Love, so we would suggest Troy or Geraldine link to that work in this transcript. [Geraldine] I've found it and will include it in the transcript [Michael Entity] To continue with the elaboration on the non-linear aspects of Love: While each context is inclusive of the previous context/s, Love can be "entered" or shared from any context. So while the default may be Reciprocity, one can build from there, or emphasize from there. To build would be to go beyond Reciprocity, and to emphasize would be to bring forth those contexts within Reciprocity. What we have described so far is related to LOVE, which is technically a capacity known only to Essence. The Personality can Experience and Realize Love, but it cannot Love. This is not a handicap or bad news. No more than it would be to say that your car cannot drive itself. This does not diminish the Personality any more than it would diminish the importance of the car for your needing it to get to where you want to go. [Martha] I don't think I understand the distinction between knowing and experiencing love [Michael Entity] While Essence defaults to a certain context of Love, it cannot learn to Love without you. We will respond to Martha, before elaborating. Did you mean "experiencing" vs "realizing"? [Martha] it feels to me like "I" know love [Martha] as a personality [Martha] so I don't quite get what you mean [Martha] vs only an Essence knowing love [nicholas] to me it means that personality can experience love...but essence is the only "thing" that can love, resonate, complete a circuit with, etc... [Michael Entity] We do not think we said that only Essence can know Love. We said that the Personality can Experience and Realize Love, but it cannot Love. [jana_kunft] yeah i think the confusion comes from you saying that is [Martha] do you mean the personality cannot generate love, only an essence can [jana_kunft] loving is a capability only known to Essence [Martha] and if we feel it, we've opened to the love [Diane] the love you are feeling is your connection to essence [nicholas] ...because essence IS love... [Michael Entity] For many of our students, the blur between Essence and Personality is so great that our differentiation is confusing. [Tim_W] The personality wouldn't be capable of loving without essence [Michael Entity] The Personality is the vehicle for the expression, exchange, and experience of Love, but it is not the source of it. In the same way that a car is a vehicle for your socializing, tasking, and adventures, but is not the source of them. Your Essence MUST be present for the Personality to express, exchange, and experience Love. Just as you MUST be present for your car to get to social engagements, tasks, and adventures. [Geraldine] So, we could say that certain behavioral illnesses such as sociopathy or psychopathy are caused by those people failing to manifest Essence? [Michael Entity] The only problem with this metaphor is that, in the case of Personality and Essence, the Essence is in the passenger's seat. That would be fair to say in most cases, Geraldine. [jana_kunft] oh right - the Personality can make decisions, unlike a car [Michael Entity] Though we would not use the word "failing." Essence never imposes, Jana. It is passive unless invited into the equation (manifested). Martha, when we differentiate between the Essence and Personality in terms of capacity for Loving, we do so in technical terms, but for those in a body, with a Personality, who are Manifesting Essence, these technicalities would seem moot. What we will share next may help you understand the technical differences. Each of your Personalities come equipped with tendencies that are described by Overleaves. Those Overleaves and their tendencies color the pursuit and receipt of experiences that are about Loving and Being Loved. The Choices and Decisions made by Personality set up the experiences and opportunities for Essence to then Love and Be Loved. The more one is manifesting Essence, then the more the Personality shares in those experiences. The paths that Personality takes toward Love are universal among Sentience: Intimate, Social, and Task Paths. Or put another way: Inspirational/Emotional Paths, Expressive/Intellectual Paths, and Action/Moving Paths. Depending on the Path that you are focused on, certain parts of your Personality/Overleaves will be ignited and ignite in others. In general, when it comes to Intimate Paths, the Modes are ignited as the means of pursuing Love. Social Paths ignite the Attitudes; and Task Paths ignite the Goal. True Love, or the Manifestation of Essence through two or more fragments, of course, ignites all of these. For the most part, when you want to grow closer to someone, you tend to Give and Receive through the Modes. You explore each others' Modes, and your Mode describes what you find as attractive about another person that you might pursue. For the most part, when you socialize, you present your Attitudes as your means of exchange. This means at new gatherings, reunions, and often in the work place, you are seeing each others' Attitudes play our more prominently than the other Overleaves. This is why politics get so involved in groups, because the Attitudes are the hub of the Personality, and most susceptible to defense/Chief Features, so gossiping, cliques, and "like-mindedness" bonding occurs. For the most part, when sharing a focus on Tasks or projects, your Goals will rise to prominence. Knowing which of your Overleaves, or which of the Overleaves of another, might be of emphasis, can help bring more consciousness to the exchanges and experiences, thus giving greater opportunities for the Personality to Realize and Experience Love. For instance, a person in Passion Mode is most attracted to the Soul Age of another fragment, because this taps into a kind of transcendence above time and space that Passion Mode tends toward. For those in Passion Mode, yesterday is not much different from tomorrow in terms of measuring time and space. However, Passion Mode often needs an anchor in time and space, and can tend to use those with whom he or she is trying to love, so those fragments become extensions of the person in Passion Mode, representing him or her. Understanding this about Passion Mode can help bring both the person in Passion Mode into an awareness of these tendencies, and the person who is in the relationship with Passion Mode, so that room is made for loving, instead of defenses or offenses. We also have an article already written through Troy about the Modes, which we suggest linking to this transcript for more exploration. Within the limited time left, we will share the sub-paths of each Path. These Paths and sub-paths are the ways in which the Personality "loves," or creates the way for Essence to actually Love. In the pursuit of Intimacy, the paths created for Essence to Love and Be Loved can be Companionship, or Fatuousness. Companionship is long-term and serious, whereas Fatuousness is short-term and whimsical. In pursuit of Socializing, the paths for Essence to Love and Be Loved can be Friendship or Infatuation. Friendship is the long-term sharing of philosophies, whereas Infatuation is the short-term acquiring of philosophies. In the pursuit of Tasks, the paths created for Essence to Love and Be Loved would be Commitment or Romance. Commitment is the long-term sharing of direction, whereas Romance is the short-term negotiation of directions. Of course, we have much more to share on this topic, and we have shared as much as we can in the extended time allotted for this group, but we think this is enough to spark new explorations of Love, Loving, and Being Loved. We will conclude here, then, and continue this discussion through Troy as he allows for us to in the exchanges of your new support group. Good evening to each of you. Goodbye.

    WARRIORS - Loving and Being Loved

    [Excerpted from: OMW: Loving and Being Loved] MEntity: Before we go into the dynamics of the Personality and how Loving and Being Loved works within each Lifetime, we will point out the general themes for each Role and how that pursuit of Loving and Being Loved shows up over lifetimes. Every Role has its blind spot to love, and when that blind spot finds light, that Role usually experiences a profound exposure to Love. … WARRIORS, more than any other Role, tend to require you to WIN THEM OVER to Love as a means to bring light to their blind spot. This is different from "proving" Love, in that it does not require proof as much as it does endurance. Of course, that endurance is often experienced as Loyalty, and Loyalty is Love to the Warrior. WARRIORS - need to be Won Over - defaulting to Reciprocal Love KINGS - need you to Let Them Love - defaulting to Agape Love These needs are correlated to MARTYRDOM and IMPATIENCE, which are about Losing Control of Space, and Losing Control of Time. In other words, the Warrior needs shared "territory" to Love, and The King needs shared "time" to Love.

    Ask Michael: January 2016

    Ask Michael - Jan 3, 2016 MEntity: Hello to each of you. We are here, now. We can begin. QUEUE IS NOW OPEN Maureen: I'm curious as to the process of intuition, perception, resonance, etc. specifically around the ‘reading’ of, or the resonating with, someone across physical distance, either through photographs, names, etc. (visual), recording (aural) psychometry (touch), or chatting online, etc., vs. being with someone in person. Are there different levels, stages, rings, etc. of resonance, perception or intuition? Have I included too much in a grouping? Do these need to be parsed out differently? I'm asking this is as it often surprises me that, no matter how well I know someone, online, by phone, by photograph, etc., or how intuitive I am, it FEELS different in person. Not in a way like I was ‘wrong’ but in the way that people seem to be much more, in ‘the flesh’. They seem to come into focus better. They are often more rounded, warmer, clearer, darker, etc. It’s like we can't dismiss the weight or palpability of what we experience (…or I can't), through the sheer presence of another, while we're on the physical plane. What am I seeing/sensing here? I'm also wondering if this isn't a much more common experience, or process, than many realize but because it happens at a mostly subconscious level it may be missed. MEntity: Distance and Time are not factors when there is a valid "reading" by one individual of another individual. Clarity will remain dependent upon the strength of intuition, psychic capacity, resonance, reception, etc. However, whether in person or at a distance, the reader will still have his or her art of imagination and degree of projection to navigate and manage. Projection can alter the clarity of a reading in person and at a distance. Imagination fuels intuition and synthesis of input, so the more raw and unrefined, the more likely the imagination is filling in the gaps rather than finding and acknowledging the gaps. The physical presence of a person does not lend greater or lesser accuracy, but the individual who is reading may find some preferences for degrees of proximity. Maureen: Can the projection of the person being read, for example, how one wants to be seen "publically" through photos, etc., also affect what the reader perceives? MEntity: If one prefers closer proximity, there can tend to be more comfort found in how a person wishes to present or be himself or herself, or how that person wishes to be seen. For those who prefer distance, there may be an awareness that the reader may be too inclined to please rather than offer insight. Maureen: Thank you! MEntity: In other words, a reader who likes closer proximity may prefer to see the immediate effects of reading so as to adjust information based on subtle or not-so-subtle feedback. Those readers who prefer distance may recognize that they are too inclined to use that feedback to alter insight to please, rather than inform. So there is no standard or circles or levels here. There are only degrees of clarity, comfort, art, and preference. We will say that your observation about the presence of an individual is valid. The physical presence of an individual while in the Physical Plane carries with it references that are of this dimension that cannot be read without that presence. By "physical presence" we mean voice at the very least, and video, or actual in-person interaction. Maureen: Thank you. MEntity: Reading photos is one of the means most susceptible to projection and inaccuracy. A snapshot in time, a posed image, a behavior caught within a specific context, etc. do not help much with the clarity of intuition, etc. A photo can help a reader to connect to an individual, but not always resonate with that individual. There is a difference between Connection and Resonance. Connection is separate parts linked by something between, while Resonance removes that "something between." Janet: Michael, for the last couple of years at this time you have given us a list of the 7 elements that prompt learning for the year, in the form of questions to ask ourselves. Can you provide the 7 elements that prompt our learning in this Server year? MEntity: ONE - Will you make the effort to care enough? (Are you willing to do the work that caring invites you to do?) TWO - Are you willing to care only because you care? (caring for the sake and reward of caring) THREE - Can you care about "the world," "others," and yourself at the same time? FOUR - Are you willing to step back, rest, and recover when you feel you are no longer effective in caring? (caring for yourself as your primary fuel, and not as your last resort). FIVE - Are you willing to respond rather than react? SIX - Are you willing stop being unintentionally or intentionally hurtful (to yourself or others)? SEVEN - Are you willing to trust your impulses, instincts, and do the work of providing your very basic needs? All of the above questions speak to the heightened invitation to care in a Server year. Janet: Thank you Michael. MEntity: In a year when the invitation to care is heightened, the concept is not enough. There is work to do. There is rest required. There are priorities of distribution of fuel for the capacity to continue caring. The idea of reward and benefit from caring may keep some from caring if the results are not immediate, but the Server year comes when long-term care is needed for preferred changes to come and for safe development to be secured. The above elements of the Server year can help you to check in and determine where you are and what might need to be done at any given moment. PeterK: My understanding is that Astral matter is very malleable and that one may form it into whatever one wishes. What are the properties and characteristics of Astral matter that give it such flexibility? MEntity: Astral matter is, basically, a less-dense form of Physical matter, so it retains a great deal of the same properties that govern the Physical Plane, but while Physical matter is locked/frozen, if you will, in time and space, Astral matter is not. Imagine all Planes as having the same matter, but because of the different states of those Planes, that matter behaves differently. Water can be ice (solid), liquid, vapor (gas). The Physical Plane is like ice, while the Astral is like liquid. The Ice "floats" in the water, or the Physical Plane emerges from the Astral. Another way to understand how the Astral works is that the Physical Plane is based in Matter, while the Astral is based in Energy. The Astral, then, could be said to be a vast range of properties more akin to properties of light, but far more than are understood while Physical. This is a topic worthy of a full exploration. For now, these simplistic responses will have to do. PeterK: Thank you very much. JanaK: Hello Michael, is the theory of Anima and Animus (as per Jungian psychology) a valid one? Can you expand on the topic (within time limit)? MEntity: Yes, there is validity here. In our teaching, we have elaborated upon this as the 7 Female Archetypes and 7 Male Archetypes. Every Personality carries within him or her a combination. These have profound effects upon relationships, effectiveness in the world, and behaviors. We can elaborate upon these in a dedicated topic so that the full context can be shared, because the Male/Focused, Female/Creative Energy Ratios, as well as the Physiological and Psychological gender play roles in determining one's Anima/Animus and what the positive and negative traits are. But the short answer is that there is validity. JanaK: Thank you, can I just ask - am I right that you have not shared this via Troy? MEntity: We have, but we did so in his early years with us. AnnH: Many John F Kennedy assassination theories out there. In MFM, you said that JFK had a PCF of Martyrdom and he married a woman he did not love. If I recall rightly, the inference was that it was to please family/political wishes. Also in MFM there was a brief interchange in which it was channeled that you agreed his assassination was cosmically influenced. (Can't find the relevant quote). So here is my question: What was behind the JFK assassination? Was Lee Harvey Oswald a "patsy" as he claimed? Is anyone on the right track with this, one of the most controversial subjects in 20th century US history? MEntity: The "cosmic" element referenced is about the patterns that cycle across time and become historically significant, acting as turning points, or as a kind of "corner" on the path of time. "Corners" in the path of time can tend to be replications or mirrored events that act in similar ways for Sentience, such as that of "JFK" and Abraham Lincoln. These cosmic influences are not from outside forces, but are generated by Sentience and its patterns of choice, action, thoughts, and emotions. AnnH: Unlike Garfield or McKinley, but like MLK and Malcolm X MEntity: The primary motivation for the assassination was the pending legalization of recreational and medicinal drugs. There were other factors, and this may seem petty at this point in history, but the potential loss of revenue on marijuana generated a fantastic panic. Lee Harvey Oswald was, indeed, a "patsy," and was fairly clueless. We think there is a subtle, but significant, trail of documented deliberations, discussions, and debates about pressing forward with legalizing recreational drugs in a way that could remove the power from illegal sources and become not only a source of income for the government, but help avoid the rising fears, arrests, and imprisonment around the use of drugs. It could have "changed everything." AnnH: Wow. Like the prison industrial complex. So who killed him? MEntity: In the few parallels where this President was not assassinated and the legalization moved forward, the medical industry shifted drastically toward more balance with holistic and homeopathic treatments/cures alongside emergency allopathic fixes, and the wedge among "races" was diminished greatly as the prison industrial complex could not gain footing. International relationships improved, as well, when other countries followed lead and reduced the impact of underground, illegal forces. Though there were three individuals involved, a private military sniper was the one who actually killed the man known as John. AnnH: From where? The School Book Depository? The grassy knoll? JanaK: how could have killing him alone make such a difference? MEntity: We are not certain how to describe the location, but it was outside near/through a fence. Brian: Hi Michael. This might be similar to Maureen's question, but could you please comment on the nature of "psychic bonds" or "psychic links' between two people and how to strengthen those? How might one "see" or "hear" the other through those links, or is it limited to a "knowing" that the other is present in the form of thinking of the other person? MEntity: The more mutual and acknowledged the bond, the more expanded the effects. Though these kinds of bonds can be "one-sided" to some extent, the clarity is increased with mutuality. In addition to the mutuality, actual practice would need to be in place for developing more conscious ranges of effect. The subconscious and unconscious effects are in place "no matter what," but if more conscious control is sought, it requires practice. Practice includes literal testing of clarity and communication, such as one person thinking of the other at a certain time of day while the other notes when he or she senses that thought. Or requesting a phone call and seeing if the other responds. Or "sending" a color to see if the other receives it. These are ways to increase more conscious, practical, and useful uses of that bonding, but we should point out that most benefits of psychic bonding or linking are related to understanding, compassion, intimacy, acceptance, etc. That is when the "real tests" can come into play. Psychic bonding does not require explanations, excuses, or blame, but builds upon a profound trust. The "knowing" expands exponentially from sensing the thoughts of the other person into fully comprehending and trusting the entire range of motivations and intent of the other. Diane_HB: This is Tex's question: It seems to me that when the body dies, the personality is in for a rather rude awakening, as all of its beliefs and self-concepts are no longer supported by the physical existence of a body. If the personality thought of the earth life as "real," not just an experience, then its reality had to die too. This extreme loss of emotional investment would have an extreme consequence. If this supposition is correct, how is loss this dealt with after death? Is a lot of our between-life study motivated by overcoming a sense of loss? MEntity: What you speak of here is the process of the 6th and 7th Internal Monads. It is true that death can be a "rude awakening," particularly when a Personality has not embraced its mortality. Most Personalities for fragments with Soul Ages below 3rd Level Mature have a very difficult time with death. This is why it is considered by so many as something to ignore, avoid, prevent, or fear. The "higher" the Level of the Soul Age, the more likely death is embraced, at least within the contexts natural to the particular Soul Age. It is not true that the "reality" dies with the life, however. Every lifetime has the option of either repeating in a kind of "groundhog day" recycling that plays out variations on the path of that life, or the life can continue beyond death in a replicated state in the Astral. Both of these are most likely in the early Levels of a Soul Age and then "wrap up" before moving into the next Soul Age. Diane_HB: Tex: and these processes are taking place only by the personality, not the Essence? MEntity: Both There are rude awakenings, but once the initial shock wears off and Essence is remembered, the experience is quite elating and blissful. Especially when loved ones, both alive and dead, are on hand for greeting. Reading more on the 6th and 7th Internal Monads can help understand how best to move toward one's exit from the life. DianeHB: Thank you TyroneTT: If there's enough energy or time, can I have the 7 behaviors for transforming the chief feature of Martyrdom? Like the ones we've gotten for Impatience, Self-Deprecation and Arrogance MEntity: We suggest leaving this question posed in your final transcript and we will add for Troy to edit in when we return with greater focus through Troy. We must conclude for today. Good evening to each of you. Goodbye, for now. UPDATED 2/17/2016: to include the answer to Tyrone's question on the 7 behaviors for transforming the chief feature of Martyrdom: MEntity: ONE - NOT EVERYTHING NEEDS FIXING - it is important for those in Martyrdom to remember that not everything needs to be fixed. TWO - YOU ARE NOT THE ONLY ONE WHO CAN FIX IT - even when something may need fixing, you are not always the one necessary for fixing it. THREE - THE ONLY SPACE YOU OWN IS YOU - for those in Martyrdom it can be a struggle to control the space around the self, but the self is the only boundary that is truly owned by you. You end where your skin ends. It is okay to expand into the space around you, but you cannot always control that space. FOUR - YOU ARE A SURVIVOR (not a victim) - If you are alive, you are a survivor. It is undermining to your efforts to navigate life if you presume you are a victim, but it can be empowering to remind yourself that you are a survivor, that you care enough to continue, that your struggle does not define you, but guides you. FIVE - YOU ARE NOT THE ONLY SURVIVOR - there are true victims in life, and true survivors. True victims have been harmed in ways that force the choices of life toward survival, but victimhood only exists to the extent that one resigns from making choices. Others are surviving along with you in life, and it can be helpful to reach out so that a network of strength can be built, instead of ignoring this survival bond. SIX - YOU CAN SEE FURTHER THAN YOU THINK - you may be dealing with survival and boundaries and control to the point where you seem to only be able to see what is in front of you, but you can see further than this. Look forward, look further, look beyond. There are truths and inspiration there that can help guide you. SEVEN - BE NICE - those in Martyrdom can sometimes think it is justified to be difficult, to ignore boundaries, to uphold expectations and entitlement, to fault others for unhappiness, etc. And this often nurtures a license to be insensitive to others until someone is sensitive enough to break through and save you from your Martyrdom. No life needs to be perfect before being nice. And being nice brings a great wave of support and more valid control over the life than one might expect, and certainly in more effective ways than being difficult can bring.
  5. [Excerpt from TT: 2016-02-17] The 7 Angles of Behavior for transforming MARTYRDOM might be: ONE - NOT EVERYTHING NEEDS FIXING - it is important for those in Martyrdom to remember that not everything needs to be fixed.

No life needs to be perfect before being nice. And being nice brings a great wave of support and more valid control over the life than one might expect, and certainly in more effective ways than being difficult can bring.
  6. May 23, 2002 Troy Tolley, Channel Open Floor [M_Entity] Hello to all of you. We are here. And, yes, we will begin with an energy report. We realize some of you do find validation and benefit from these reports. For the following few weeks, it could be said that a theme of REGENERATION is at hand. Some may have seen the past month as showing signs of many things coming to an apparent “end,” but we have seen this as being a means to regenerate energy into new levels of Form to accommodate the broader climates of consciousness. Many things that are symbolic to you are “ending,” ranging from long-­term television series to major changes in physical locations among friends and family. If you have noticed a theme of these “endings” and major changes, you are quite conscious of the effects of this passing Nexus, shifting a great deal in reality from being symbolic to being “REAL.” These shifts from symbolic to physical imply that a great deal of you incarnated are highly interested in making changes in your lives in a direction that would make your physical reality as accurately representing your internal ideals as possible. In other words, it appears more fragments are willing to use the Moving Center from the Positive Pole, more than has been the case in a long time. For the next 2­3 weeks, then, it would not be surprising if you find yourselves feeling pulled to “get out” more, to go for ponderous walks, dance, be playful, and surrender to an enthusiasm that may or may not be directional. A strong drive toward physical affection and embracing of people you normally would find challenging, appears to be a potential result of this regeneration. Things you have carried internally categorized as “unacceptable,” “annoying,” “agitating,” or any other abrasive term, will seem a general “waste” of energy to sustain. This is due to the second wave of energy moving out from the “terrorist” threats that brought down your World Trade Center Towers One and Two, and general war­-related tensions from that. The productivity gained from major internal realizations and profound release of “old energy” is finally able to come into tangibility. There have been many “major” shifts on this planet and within your lifetime, but we would say that the passing Nexus has found more participants from a conscious level than we have ever seen. There is a general sense of “waking up” that we have not seen in nearly 25 years. The most meaningful suggestion we can give in light of this energy report is to gently, and with trust follow your impulses. Internal “Maps” and Essence-­driven patterns for the life are more accessible than ever, for most of you. When we say to “follow your impulses,” we differentiate this from your “compulsions” and “addictions.” Impulses are gentle and easily dismissed, while compulsions have a force about them. This is not to say that some compulsions do not have valid, meaningful paths, but that Impulsions are usually more aligned with Essence, as Impulses are from a force you may consider from within, while Compulsions are derived from external feedback and stimulation. Both Compulsion and Impulsion are valid, but Compulsion is based in Personality, which may or may not be using data and feedback accurately, and Impulsion is derived from the desires of Essence. We do not dismiss the intelligence and accuracy of Personality. We did not say that, nor did we imply it. We merely point out the difference and the appropriate potential use of Impulsion in the context of the current energy. We will take your questions now, whether on the Energy Report, or otherwise. [mdfsage_val] How would an Idealist relate to the chief feature of Martyrdom/greed? [M_Entity] The Idealist sees everything in terms of how it can be improved. This can be a benefit, in that it can help a fragment find ways to successfully evolve many things within the life, Personality, and Essence, but it can also lead to tremendously oppressive bouts of comparing. When the Idealist is seeing through the Positive Poles, he can see the patterns that would lead to an evolution of an event, person, or thing, and he will move toward supporting, creating, or altering energy to align with that pattern. When he is seeing through the Negative Poles, he simply reverts to the use of “SHOULD,” and merely sees the major gap between the way things are and how they SHOULD be. Using the Chief Features of Martyrdom and Greed, the Idealist may feel that the gap between where he is and where he should be is too far out of his control and hopeless (martyrdom). He may tend toward being a physical, emotional, spiritual, or intellectual “black hole” that cannot seem to find anything to fill the gap so painfully perceived (greed). This response is but a simplified response, but we believe this will allow you some insights. [sam­nemo] What happened to Soleal who was mentioned in the transcripts of Sarah Chambers? [M_Entity] Though validity was given to this energy as an “alien consciousness,” this was more a personification of 3 fragment's Essences who were involved in refining contact with us. A valid off-planet consciousness was involved, but as the mediums were quite new in making this kind of contact, a great deal of personification, projection, and identification was a part of that exchange. When contact with any non-physical presence is first made, it is safe to say that an important part of the process IS personification, projection, and identification. Something acceptable or exciting must be created as a conduit for the energy to take “shape,” making the exchanges much more comfortable. Some fragments still find contact with “Soleal” currently, and while the “alien” consciousness is validly a part of these exchanges, those who contact “Soleal” are also using this medium as a means to communicate with Essence. The actual Essence and Personality of the fragment who is the “alien” is still incarnated and unable to pursue his experiments of physical contact due to more restrictions of contact with Earth. [Leela] I would like a basic “snapshot” of the world situation as it currently stands; could Michael please comment on the potentialities that exist right now for the Bush administration and other political entities, and for peace vs. war, or more nuanced versions of same? [M_Entity] As it stands currently, the probabilities are leaning AGAINST war on any large scale. There are very few fragments interested in this means of conflict resolution, and those who are interested, are already directly involved. The highest probability is leaning toward one more major attack on the United States in a way that rallies even the most passive of countries to join in a stand against violent conflict. Though the United States is treated with resentment and has strong “love/hate” relationships with many countries, the symbolism and model of the United States is still deeply meaningful to many fragments. With communications and travel bringing the world into more of a global tribe, any assault to any major country of influence will more than likely not be tolerated by even the most opportunistic politicians. The shift on the planet recently seems to have most probabilities pointing to a “let's get this out of the way” mentality, which means the crux of any threats from “terrorism” will most likely manifest and pass before 18 months. As for the “Bush administration,” most probabilities will move into light the “real” intelligence and power behind handling crisis, especially as the fragment known as Bush begins to manifest more of his health issues. Though this is not a prediction, we can say that when the fragment known as the President manifests a surprising health issue of serious concern, the potential for attack will most likely be highest. Health issues for both President and Vice President are quite unstable at this time. [LoriA] What kind of attack and where would the most probability be (location wise), here in the U.S.? Thank you. [M_Entity] We still see what is called the “Midwest” as being the highest probable target, ranging from the Sears Tower to attack on a small town. The second highest probability is Hoover Dam, while New York City Subways and the White House are tertiary concerns. Again, we believe this to be most likely within the next 18 months. [MaryBV] I would like to know about Chandra Levy. What is the story here? Is this a monad playing out or an agreement? What can Michael tell us? [M_Entity] This is neither a Monad or an Agreement, but the creation of Karma. The original Karma existed between the fragment known as Condit and the female known as Levy, but the burning of that ribbon was “botched” and compounded. Condit could not bring himself to burn the ribbon, himself, but the compulsion to do so was still present, leading him to hire “hit men.” Levy's Essence, in a previous incarnation, of course, had directly committed murder of the fragment who is now Condit. The burning of this ribbon would have had Condit directly ending the life of Levy, but, as we said, this is now compounded by including the two “hit men.” Now there are two Major Murder Karma between the Essences of Levy and Condit, and Major Murder Karma between the Essence of Levy and one of the “hit men,” along with Major Bondage Karma between the Essence of Levy and the other “hit man.” In addition, there is new Karma formed among the “hit men” and the fragment known as Condit. We think even more Karma would be formed when indictments and imprisonment cause the fragments involved to have to abandon their families and positions of authority. [JNelson] Could you clarify “Major Bondage Karma”? [M_Entity] “Major Bondage Karma” is in the major physical restrictions imposed against the will of one fragment from another fragment, which most likely leads to death. “Minor Bondage Karma” might be the holding down of a fragment while another fragment punches him. [ClaireN] Do some spiritual practices promote access to the higher centers, such as Devotion (Bhakti) to the higher emotional center, or concentration to the higher intellectual? If so, please elucidate. [M_Entity] There are many “spiritual” practices that promote accessing of the Higher Centers. Some are more refined than others, and some are more inclined toward meaningless access, but the impact of the access can be profound, in any case. We would say that “Bhakti” is quite capable of encouraging access to the Higher Emotional Center, as well as the festive Southern Baptist Church vocal orgies. The act of Concentration can truly refine your access to the Higher Intellectual Center, as can the various versions of “speaking in tongues,” particularly in the churches of Pentecostals. Physical Sexual contact with awareness, which is part of Tantra, can move a fragment to Higher Moving Centered access, as can Shamanism practices. As we suggest these correlations, we do not suggest they are the ONLY means of “spiritual practices” that can access these Centers, nor do we suggest they will work for all fragments who would choose to pursue them. A car accident or serious illness can work as well as a long-­term pursuit and discipline. If the interest is there, we would of course be able to comment on the many varying practices and disciplines in terms of how inclined they are toward access and refinement of access to the Higher Centers. We can suggest noting this as a possible subject of discussion in future exchanges. [mdfsage_val] What is the difference between a tandem evolution & a tandem monad, thank you. [M_Entity] A Tandem Monad is a general non-binding, but strongly devoted, sharing of life experiences and major turning points in a life, whether the fragments are in contact with each other, or not. The Tandem Monad is not dependent on physical contact, but more of an Essence-based parallel of experiences gained by the Personalities of those in the Monad. The Tandem Monad will have these major experiences and major shifts, along with strikingly uncanny similarities in lifestyles and choices, all seemingly parallel between the fragments. We use Tandem Evolution to refer to fragments who have decided as Personalities to pursue similar paths of experience and to actively share in that progress, allowing each other to act as support, security, feedback, insight, etc. [clavis] I have noticed “things ending” or “things changing” around me, but I am at lost as to “where I should go next” (and no impulses). Could Michael give any insight? [M_Entity] There are always impulses. In most cases where the sense of “no impulse” is present, the impulse is actually, quite simply, to “wait.” The impulse is informing you to manage reality as it stands currently, but that more information may be needed as a means for determining further impulses. In other cases where the impulse is not recognized, it is because the impulse contradicts the momentum the fragment has invested in. [clavis] So can I say that right now I need to wait for these impulses to lead me to the next step in my 4th IM? [M_Entity] If the latter is the case, it seems to be quite helpful to consult an oracle of preference, such as I Ching or Tarot or Horary Astrology. Using these nonlinear means of insight can lead the fragment into either finding the impulses leading to preferred change, or at least how to find impulses WITHIN the decision to remain with the momentum. In response to your clarification question, we would say, in your case, seeking insight from an oracle would be satisfying, in conjunction with the validity of your impulse to make no major changes just yet. In many teachings, this stage you are experiencing is called “the void.” It is the space and time “byproduct” resulting from a major creation of change. While in “the void,” the opportunity to find trust and contact with Essence is heightened as you experience gentle surrender. This is an experience similar to the long night before the opening of gifts on Christmas Morning. In most cases, if “the void” is being experienced, you can rest assured that a major manifestation of some sort (a gift) is “around the corner.” In other exchanges, we can also suggest an exploration of this phenomenon would be Good Work. [essences] Sorry I got disconnected so I have lost the last 10 minutes of conversation. My question was: Michael, how can I better understand if I am being impulsed to say change a career, or if it is a compulsion to change? If it is compulsion can it also be essence driven? [M_Entity] As we said before, but will say again with more clarification: Impulsion is more silent, easily dismissed, yet persistent. Compulsion is that which seems more forceful, easily carried out, and is usually repetitive in its effect. Impulses lead to major and minor changes in the life, while Compulsions seem to repeat themselves in varying layers and levels. BOTH are valid as a means to create and unfold the life, but they are different. An example may be that a fragment may have an IMPULSE to change his direction or medium of his career, while a COMPULSION may be to remain in the career that is working, even if other more satisfying options are available, though risky. These are neither positive nor negative. They are simply two of seven ways to create and sustain a lifetime. More specifically, these are two of seven ways to Choose. We will discuss this in more detail, as well, in other gatherings. We will conclude here. Good Night.
